Im trying to lose weight and need tips on how to beat temptation

Maricela answers:

I had the same problem when i was loosing weight. I bought jello frozen chocolate pudding pops.(sugar free) they pulled me thru the cravings, and i am down by 52 pounds. They tasted great, even though they were sugar free, they had no after taste. And i got accustomed to diet soft drinks, that was a little harder, but after about a week, they tasted just fine also. You’ll get a thousand diet tips, but you just have to stick to it. Best of luck, and hang in there. If i can do it, anyone can.

What is the fastest way to lose weight?

I’m an 11 year older and I am extremely overweight. I need to know how to lose weight, some exercise tips, and eating tips.I am a finicky eater and I need healthy food for me to eat.Help!

Maricela answers:

Don’t stress I know how you feel and know what your going through.

First off, Just only eat when you are hungry, not because your bored then you are eating when you aren’t really hungry and your packing on the calories. And just gradually start picking better and healthier things to eat. Like Wheat pasta instead of normal pasta, little things like that. You can get your whole family involved and tell them to get that for you and you could even go grocery shopping with them to pick out healthier things to eat. I think wheat pasta actually tastes WAY better than normal pasta its REALLY good! And also try getting smaller portions when you eat, get a portion about the size of your palm.

Second, start exercising regularly. About and hour a day. If you don’t own any workout videos you could go buy some good ones, or find some free excising videos and watch online. Or even on t.v I see excising videos on t.v in the morning. Remember that the key is to burn off the calories that you eat.

Third, DON”T GIVE UP!!! You can do it, I know you can. Don’t give up just because you don’t see results in the first couple of days it will take awhile but trust me, if you start now and stay constant you will see results soon! You control your life and you CAN change it!

What is the most healtiest way to lose weight?

I am overweight and I would really like to lose some weight before the summer comes. At least 50 lbs. How can I achieve this for all the people that have lost weight? Any good tips will be appreciated

Maricela answers:

Of course eating healthfully is important, but the most critical element is

1. EXERCISE. Most people don’t want to hear that but its just the truth. 4 years ago i made a deal with myself to work out three times a week for one month. I made a little chart and would put a check in the box for each time i worked out. As elementary as that sounds, it really helped me. I could put a check in regardless of the time spent. This was critical in helping me get over the “all or nothing” thinking that i am so prone to. Before, i thought that i had to have 90 minutes to go to the gym and workout for an hour and change and come home and if i couldnt do that, it wasnt worth it. ANYTHING IS BETTER THAN NOTHING. Get some workout dvd’s…you can check them out for free at the library. And do something. If you have an hour….great. 20 minutes? Great. If your day is bonkers and you can only do 30 pushups and some crunches? Its better than nothin. And don’t wait until you FEEL like working out. You probably won’t. I have been working out 5-6 times a week for 4 years and i almost never feel like working out. To me, it is a necessary evil. I bet you are busy. So am i. I bet you “can’t find the time to work out”. Of course you can’t! You have to MAKE the time. You make time for what is important. A thought that occured to me once was “i bet that if i took the time i spend thinking bad things about and hating my body and spent that amount of time exercising…that would make a huge difference.” don’t think about a life time commitment right now. Just commit to one month….or even 2 weeks and say that you’ll re-evaluate after that.

2. Know your weaknesses and be honest with yourself about them. I know that if i buy a bag of oreos, i will eat them all in less than two days. I was bulimic for 14 years. I have been in recovery for about 3 years, but i still don’t trust myself. Any sort of “tempting” food goes into a padlocked box. There’s one in my freezer, one in my fridge and one in the cupboard. My boyfriend has to open them. I know it seems demeaning, but it was MY idea and has been incredibly helpful.

In closing, i sincerely hope this doesnt come across in the wrong way. I’m worried it may sound harsh or preachy. It comes from place of honesty and a desire to help you achieve your goal. I lost almost 50 pounds (gradually…it probably took me 3 years). And it is damn hard work! Anyone who claims to have an “easy” and “fast” way to lose weight is lying. Its hard and at times, you will want to quit; but life is so much richer when you are not living in bondage to weight issues and self hatred.

I wish you the very best!
